Completorrent and Google custom search engine

completorrent-torrent-search

After YouTorrent here you have the next generation for searching torrent files. Is called CompletTorrent and is the most comprehensive torrent search website on the internet.

How does CompleTorrent work?
CompleTorrent uses google as a backend. This makes it just as efficient as google is at categorizing links based on popularity and relevance. Basically, it puts all the popular torrents that are more closely matched to your query at the top. Also, when a site is added, CompleTorrent does not need to crawl the site. Google has already done this which means that all torrents on that site are added to CompleTorrent immediately. Which means CompleTorrent gains hundreds of torrents with each site that is suggested.

Mininova Hits The Million Torrent Uploads Mark

mininova

Torrent number 1,000,000 was uploaded yesterday by an anonymous user. Unfortunately, the memorable torrent has no seeds, which makes it likely that it wont be around much longer.

One million uploaded torrents is a great accomplishment, especially if you consider that Mininova only allows user uploads. Contrary to what most people assume, Mininova doesn’t scrape any torrents from other websites, all the torrents hosted on the website are uploaded by its users.

It took almost a year to get from the 500,000th torrent, which was uploaded November 2006, to the millionth torrent. So, the traffic and the torrent downloads grow faster than the torrent uploads, indicating that most new users are mostly interested in downloading and not in publishing content. At the moment, approximately 1350 torrents are uploaded to Mininova every day and the site hosts over 550,000 .torrent files in total.

Earlier this week we reported that Mininova entered the list of the top 50 most visited websites on the Internet. Some people might have noticed that Mininova spits out a few errors every now and then if you try to load a page, this is one of the downsides of the traffic increase. However, Mininova founder Niek assured us that they are working on it and that it should get better soon.

Demonoid.com, one of the most popular BitTorrent trackers, was forced to go offline again because the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) threatened their ISP.

It’s been just over 6 weeks since the CRIA allegedly shut down the Demonoid BitTorrent tracker. Details were scarce at the time, with lots of people simply claiming the site had some technical or server issues. Indeed, TorrentFreak came in for quite some criticism when we claimed the CRIA was involved, but when the site returned there were some ominous signs which seemed to support our claims.
